Synopsis

America has enemies--ruthless people that the police, the FBI, even the military can't stop. That's when the U.S. government calls on Will Robie, a stone cold hitman who never questions orders and always nails his target.
But Will Robie may have just made the first--and last--mistake of his career . . .
THE INNOCENT
It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable. He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.
Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a fourteen-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway-her parents were murdered, and her own life is in danger. Against all of his professional habits, Robie rescues her and finds he can't walk away. He needs to help her.
Even worse, the more Robie learns about the girl, the more he's convinced she is at the center of a vast cover-up, one that may explain her parents' deaths and stretch to unimaginable levels of power.
Now, Robie may have to step out of the shadows in order to save this girl's life . . . and perhaps his own.

Typical formulaic Baldacci

How does Baldacci's main character manage to have the appropriate vehicle or the right firepower planted all over the USA or the rest of the globe. Its amazing. The plot doesn't really hang together and the whole spouse wanting to exact revenge is a bit tired.

My second favorite Baldacci character, behind the principle in the first Baldacci book I've read "Last Man Standing," is Will Robie, the principle in "The Innocent."

Baldacci is turning out to be my favorite author. You know when you start reading one of his books, that you will be entertained. This book had many twists to keep up your interest.

This the first book I have read by this author. I couldn't put it down. Fast paced and emotionally jarring at time. I followed Will, Vance, & Julie into a world far removed from my own. Loved it!

Interesting read!!

I was a little sceptical at first, as I am not a big James Bond-ish book type fan. But nevertheless I enjoyed the Book enough to buy "The Forgotten" that was previewed in this book...
